First, we arrived at 2:30 and were sent away because Checkin is not until 4. Of course, check out is bright and early at 10 - not great for a place with a 4pm check in. The maid was standing outside our door at 9:45 and when my husband went down to the car asked "are you done"?
By 4PM, the line was horrendous. You would think that, with nobody waiting to check in, they might allow you to check in early if your room is ready (they never bothered to ask our name before turning us away).
The room was ok - beds comfortable, ripped bedskirt, in need of better cleaning, but not filthy - no bugs (hint: cleaners, look UP - the vent in the bathroom was covered in a thick layer of dust & I think the furnace had some dirt coming out if it - black spots on the dresser across from the vent).
The floor could use a good scrubbing - it was clean, but dingey.
The wifi was down several times during our stay. Then the previously unlocked wifi suddenly required a password. It too was down a couple times - annoying, but not grounds for the near riot from the mob of angry guests.
The power was off for several hours one day - not sure if that was a hotel issue, but I suspect it was since the wifi still worked (irony).
The lady in the shop downstairs was a gem!
BTW, we stayed in the tower. Not sure I would stay in the low rise section. All in all, I think it was ok for what we paid.
